DRAG WEEK RECORD BROKEN - LARRY LARSON RUNS A 6.95 AT 209.10 MPH

The 2010 Hot Rod Drag Week is over and it was the best ever! To end the week of competition, Larry Larson threw everything he had at breaking into the 6's on what turned out to be the final run of the night. Here is the first video to show that very run! There's an on board view and an awesome super slo-mo to get a great look at the fire breathing Chevy II that Larry wheeled to a Drag Week record of 6.95. We had two street driven cars run over 200 MPH in the quarter mile, Larry in his Chevy II and Jeff Lutz in his 57 Chevy and both cars survived the grueling 1000 mile drive as well!

Hot Rod Corvette Hack - The Long Version
This is the video version of the Corvette Hack story that appeared in the Nov. '10 issue of Hot Rod magazine. You'll see the Hot Rod staff shred an '85 Corvette, cutting off parts until it was nearly a bare frame. The point? To see how much the car's performance improved as it dropped weight (into the Dumpster).
